IMAC - NEED KEYPAD TO WORK AS DISPLAYED.

Recommended Posts

Unbelievable!

No one I have consulted including the Apple People know how to get the keypad part of the Magic Keyboard to enter the digits as displayed. Setting up my new passwords was a disaster because all passwords have to include a digit. I had no idea the keypad was not working as displayed, so I created a lot of incorrect passwords.

I have been using my PC, with a standard keyboard for almost 20 years and had no idea the keypad part of an apple keyboard would not work the same way. 

I need to get a new PC system, and get rid of this quirky rotten apple, unless this problem can be resolved.

Perhaps try a standard USB PC Keyboard 1st.....much cheaper Option.... or a different Mac Keyboard?

 

I use a old Mac Keyboard on a 2nd PC with no issues , but I don't think it has a Numlock Key like a PC Keyboard , but then I don't know Macs so perhaps Numlock is done a different way?

 

Win10 can disable the NUMPad at Boot time and force you to use the Number Keys , not sure if MAC OS does something similar?
